Walk to End Summer Hunger takes over Sarasota. Here's how to donate.

Sarasota, Florida - On Sunday, Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota was a sea of people walking for one cause – to end hunger. The third annual Walk to End Summer Hunger drew hundreds of participants of all ages and backgrounds who came together in support of fighting hunger.

The event was organized by All Faiths Food Bank, the largest food bank and hunger relief organization serving Sarasota County since 1989. According to Sandra Frank, CEO of All Faiths Food Bank, "Summer is always a tough time for families struggling with food insecurity because children are out of school and don't have access to free or reduced-price meals."

The walk kicked off at 9 am with enthusiastic walkers ready to make a difference in their community. Participants walked around the park’s lake as they enjoyed music from local bands and performances from dance groups.

"Seeing so many people come out today gives me hope that we can make a real impact on ending summer hunger," said John Smithson who participated in the walk alongside his family. "It's incredible how just coming together for an event like this can help raise awareness about such an important issue."

All proceeds raised from the walk will be used towards feeding hungry individuals throughout Sarasota County. If you missed the opportunity to participate in the Walk but still want to contribute towards ending summer hunger locally, donations can be made online through All Faiths Food Bank’s website at [insert website here].

"We cannot thank our sponsors enough for making it possible for us all to come together today," said Frank as she expressed her gratitude towards all those involved in making this year's walk another success.

As hunger continues being prevalent across many communities worldwide, events like these give hope that there is action being taken locally towards creating solutions that benefit everyone regardless of background or age group.
